This is an addon to the Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce that lets you select multiple timeslots on a date for each product on the website.
You can display the time slots in two ways: Multiple Time slots and Single Time slot.

Setup Multiple Time slot on a product
After activating this addon, there will be an additional setting “Time Slot Selection” in the Availability tab of our Booking meta box. Here you can choose the type of time slot to be displayed on the front end.
When the Multiple option is selected here, the time slots are displayed in the form of checkboxes, where you can select multiple time slots. And if you select the Single option, you will be able to select only one-time slot while booking the product.
After selecting the type of time slot, you can add the time slots as per your need. The time slots will get added as they were made by default.
Note: If Single is selected in the Time Slot Selection field, the time slots on the front end will be displayed in a dropdown menu, as it was displayed by default. Also, if at all you want to change the time slot selection from Multiple to Single or vice-versa at any point, you will only need to select the required radio button. No need to remake all the time slots.

Once the time slots are created for the product, it will be displayed on the front end after selecting the booking date and time.

Whereas the other time slot will be available for booking after one booking is placed using that time slot.
